MSR Sweetwater Purifier. Recently replaced filter cartridge - maybe 3-4 uses since. The cartridge alone is $40-50. The retainer pin broke and I contacted MSR about a replacement and they sent me a new pump and retainer pin, making this filter almost new. Comes with silt stopper, which was $20, cleaning brush, water bottle adapter to fit most water bottles, carrying case, and you can have the extra pump.

From REI's website:


Simply pump water and add the included MSR SweetWater Purifier Solution to innactivate 99.99% of waterborne viruses, bacteria and protozoan parasites
Chlorine-based purification has no unpleasant iodine taste
One of the easiest pumps to operate—features dual-action draw and a mechanical advantage to quickly supply you with clean water
Sturdy lever-action pump handle provides a 4-to-1 mechanical advantage, drawing water on both the down and up stroke
Lightweight copolyester construction is tough and durable; compact design stows easily
Built-in filter replacement safety indicator keeps tabs on usage, filters up to 200 gal.
Its 0.2 micron filter eliminates waterborne bacteria and protozoa such as giardia and Cryptosporidium
Field serviceable and easy to clean with no small parts to lose; includes a universal bottle adapter and a cover to keep the output clean
